I’d been meaning to go to the Society of Illustrators figure drawing sessions. Somebody had told me the sessions were like parties, and I wanted to see it for myself. I finally went on Thursday night, and it was by far the most upscale drawing session I’ve ever been to. Instead of being held in an art studio, it’s held in the society’s third floor room where there’s a bar for drinks, AND a band playing jazz.
I’ll probably return…because I got a scorecard and if I fill up the card I get a session for free. With a student discount, it’s pretty cheap. The thing that I like most though is they alternate between clothed and nude models. I’ve drawn plenty of nudes but not so much clothed models, so it’s an opportunity for me to work on that.
